Here’s something for all of you G-Wagen fans, a short promotional film for the Mercedes-Benz G-Class.
Here are some tricks I have learned over the years to make traveling a little bit more enjoyable.
Here in the US, the Patrol always seemed (to me anyway) like the lost icon of Japanese four-wheel drive.
My affection for the 70 Series Land Cruiser has been well documented on ExPo, a vehicle I consider to be one of the best overland platforms ever constructed.
6000 miles, five weeks, 10 states, and one province
Given the number of hours we spent on the road on some days, the Kakadu ended up being a godsend.

In mid-December I wrote about Vincent Urban and Clemens Krüger’s on-going Vimeo series, In Asia, the first three parts of which had already been posted. The series documents the sites seen by the two filmmakers and a friend as they traveled on a two-month journey in a Land Rover Defender through Southeast Asia in the Fall of 2010. I’m happy to report that Part 4 has just been released. It covers mostly Cambodia.
Clink the vimeo link in the video for Vincent’s notes and descriptions. Enjoy.

The two-part video is about an hour long and is a little slow to get going but there’s some great footage of guys on BMW R1200GS and F800GS bikes working their way through sandy, rocky canyons, dry river sand washes, and some fantastic flat-out desert riding, including the use of a roll chart for navigation.
Part 2, around 14:45 even shows a guy jumping his big GS over berm.

The Leica M8 is one of the most elegant and captivating digital cameras available to consumers today. If there was ever an ExPo version, this is it (despite the $10,000 price tag).
